Predetermined policies to modify

I am a network administrator and must put together a set of policies and procedures for my company. Is there anywhere where I can find a predetermined set of policies and procedures than I can use and modify for my own use?

Charles Cresson Wood's "Information security policies made easy" is an excellent reference, though a bit on the expensive side. You can order it at www.pentasafe.com. PoliVec (www.polivec.com) also provides tools to help develop, implement and enforce security policies. SANS also provides sample security policies on their Web site. New Riders has published a book, "Writing Information Security Policies." I have not read it yet, so I cannot comment on how useful or informative it is.
